Amelia Mary Earhart (July 24, 1897 – disappeared July 2, 1937, declared dead January 5, 1939) was an American aviation pioneer and author. Earhart was the first female aviator to fly solo across the Atlantic Ocean. She set many other records, wrote best-selling books about her flying experiences, and was instrumental in the formation of The Ninety-Nines, an organization for female pilots.
Unfortunately, she and her navigator, Fred Noonan, disappeared over the central Pacific Ocean after July 2, 1937. There are tons of theories as to what happened to cause their disappearance, as well as what happened to Amelia. It’s a really interesting rabbit hole to fall into!
Here’s what I have so far! 5 down, 19 to go!
